So my kids are out of school for pretty much the entire month of April.
Right about now, you're thinking, "Lucky!" or "Sucks to be you." Maybe a bit of both.
And one of those days, it was warm-ish. Kids went hog wild.
It's been lots of lazy mornings. Don't know how we're gonna make it when school starts back up; I'm waking up at 8:30 and typically dozing back off for a few more minutes. It's been awesome.
So what have we been up to? Besides being lazy butts?
We're chillin' like villains.
Kids are sucking down these like they're going out of style.
Ever had a few too many, and they start to cut the insides of your lips?
AND FOR THE LOVE,
THESE JUST DON'T GO ANYWHERE, PUNKS!
I'd like to tell you that I went and cleaned the window after I snapped the picture.
"I went and cleaned that window right after."
There, I said it. Doesn't really mean anything.
But I digress.
There is exactly 500% more treat intake than is needed or warranted.
But that's a completely different post. (A post entitled: "Moms Who Eat Their Feelings.")
Anywho, I've got a list of stuff to do in the ole journal/list keeper/brain dumper,
and we are getting down to biz-nis. Just thought I'd share a few.
Saw this somewheres on pinterest:
the night time, glow-stick in the bath trick. ("They're illusions, Michael! Tricks are something a whore does for money." Name that awesome show!)
This is a hit, folks. Kids love it. (Psst: photog nerds like me: the only light source anywhere in my upstairs was those light sticks. Shot at 6400 ISO, 1/30 sec., 1.4 f. Hence, the grain. ;)
I like to call this little snack:
"Sunrise Jell-o." Coolest.Mom.Ever.
Unless you're talking to my kids, and then you should know that I am "the meanest mom ever". Go ahead and ask. They'll tell ya.
"If I was the meanest mom ever, you wouldn't even dare to tell me I'm the meanest mom ever!"
Kids. Can't live with them; pass the peanuts.
was experienced. (Make your own lava lamp!) It's pretty darned cool, too.
Oh, oh! And one more. We had this for a "fun dinner". Pizza fondue.
Friend gave me the recipe. You must try (it's an awesome appetizer/party food too, by the by).
1 pkg (8 oz) pasteurized cheese (Velveeta, etc.), cut into cubes
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 jar (14 oz) spaghetti sauce OR pizza sauce (go with the pizza sauce)
1/4 cup beef broth
You can sprinkle the dip with basil, oregano and/or grated parmesian cheese.
Melt it all in your fondue (or crock pot, whatevs) pot and serve!
Dipping suggestions: french bread (and other types of bread for variety), pepperoni chunks, bell peppers, shrooms, 'n olives.
Try it! You'l like it! ("So yummy! So yummy-yummy!")
Oh, OH! One more thing. Since we're talking kids 'n all. I want you to know, that I had dreams of some adorable Easter clothes/smiles/pictures this last Easter. Tell you, nay, show you how it went?
